Originally trained as a painter, Carolina Amato eventually chose fabrics and threads over brushes and oils – launching her eponymous accessories label in 1979. The switch wasn’t all that surprising: Amato’s grandmothers worked in New York City’s Garment District, and her grandfather made his living as a furniture upholsterer. Amato’s elegant hats, jewelry, scarves and wraps have landed her in the pages of top fashion magazines and in specialty stores all over the world. Message your friends in style in a pair of Amato’s “Holed It” texting gloves (available in cashmere and angora, and in men’s sizes), or dress up that little black dress with one of her Austrian crystal necklaces or freshwater pearl double-headbands. Lightweight cotton scarves for summer, satin bridal and evening gloves, and winter-ready infinity wraps are just some of the many other essentials you’ll find in Amato’s collection.
Don’t be fooled by the latest burst of warm weather – it’s not time to pack up the winter accessories just yet. It might even be time to acquire more, like these quilted-leather fingerless gloves with cashmere cuffs by Lauren Urstadt. Or go for featherweight cashmere wraps by Vanessa Noel or Carolina Amato, which will carry you right into spring.
Fall is in the air, and to go with the new crispness, outfit yourself from this elegant selection of cool-weather wear. Leather lace-up and wool-angora opera-length gloves perfectly compliment cashmere wraps and cozy hooded scarves.
As the mercury continues plummet, it’s stylish cold-weather accessories to the rescue. Carolina Amato’s fingerless and extra-long gloves keep arms warm in sumptuous wool and slick leather versions. From Leigh & Luca: lush shawls, artfully hand-embellished with bold graphics and prints.
